5 Underrated Hair Products For Under $5

NOW® Solutions Moroccan Red Clay- $4.49

morrocanredclay

   Moroccan Red Clay has been a very popular ingredient in skincare products and masks, and now has a place in ethnic hair care.

The clay is an Illite- a natural mineral silicate with iron and potassium-that works with other additives to hydrate, moisturize, strengthen, and soften hair. High end clay can be on the expensive side, but NOW® Solutions offers up an inexpensive and effective version of the popular rhassoul clay.

  Because the clay comes in a powder form, you must mix it with a liquid to create a spreadable substance of any consistency you’d like.

Those with fine hair may add more liquid to the powdered clay to make a thin mixture that isn’t too heavy for their hair, while those with coarse hair may need a thicker consistency.


 I mix one cup of the Moroccan Red Clay with ½ cup of aloe vera juice and a tablespoon of honey and coconut oil. I apply this smooth paste to my hair as if it were a relaxer, allow it to dry, and then thoroughly rinse the mixture out of my hair while in the shower. Do not worry about getting any of the mix on your skin because it is also used for facials and body masks.

 NOW® Solutions Moroccan Red Clay will detox your hair, leaving it feeling clean and soft while defining your natural curl pattern for just under $5.

About Patrice Lechelle


Hi! My name is Patrice Lechelle, I'm a college student born and raised in Northern California, and I just recently started embracing my love for talking about all things fashion and beauty, especially hair. Throughout the years, I've tried my best to have a hand in both performance and visual arts, but creative and journalistic writing have always held the key to my heart. My hair became the unlikely teller of my story once I realized that every up and down in my life could be seen through my locs. From hard times leading to short cuts to purple hair ushering in my rebellious streak, my hair said it ALL. My goal is to use my knowledge and experiences to give my fellow Black women the best help, tips, and encouragement I can offer.

Hi! Just a heads-up, Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera gel is not 100% aloe. It’s got at least 2 preservatives (which is understandable), but also Triethanolamine which is a toxin. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it effectiveness, but it is not pure Aloe Vera gel.

Thank you! #aloeVERAflatIRONbalm

I swear by the aloe vera gel
I use it as my daily moisturizer, I mix it with activated charcoal for facial mask, when I had relaxed hair it works great as a gel and also great for first aid(cuts & burns) I love it. ❤❤❤❤❤ I’m also going to try the Africans best herbal oil.
